  • Flipkart is opening its Bengaluru warehouse to the Indian Army.

  • The warehouse was recently upgraded to include 100 automated robots.
Homegrown e-commerce giant Flipkart has opened the doors of its Bengaluru warehouse to the Indian Army.

The armed forces has been invited to conduct their ‘Confidence Building Tours’ for college students of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) at the location.

This is the same warehouse that was recently upgraded by the Walmart-owned enterprise to include 100 automated robots. These robots are to pick up objects from the conveyor belt, scan for their destination and drop packages down the respective chutes.

This move hasn’t impacted the human workforce but has made operations more efficient, according to the company.

As a part of the tour, the students will be able to learn about the company’s key supply chain functions. They will also see how technology is used to deliver packages from a metropolitan city like Bengaluru to some of India’s most remote locations.

This initiative is a part of the Sadbhavana Project — a collection of various knowledge building projects for Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) students — by the armed forces.
